It's spelled propaganda.

Yes, I can see where you are coming from.

One thing you need to understand, this *is* actually an emotional subject for the community and for us as individuals. Try to understand that, rather than jumping to judgement.

Yup. You want "it's" (it is), not the neuter third person singular possessive, by the way.

I thought you said you were "not anti Jewish" and "anti propoganda" [sic]. Are you sure?
> I'm not going to waste my time arguing with you
It would certainly be interesting and no doubt beneficial to delve a bit more into why people need an enemy (cf. Umberto Eco, "Inventing the enemy" for an amusing take on this) and why they think it's fine to go and hate other people (enmity does not imply hate). In that sense, yes, there is a lot more than could be learned from the events in Germany, Italy, Spain, Yugoslavia, and elsewhere in the last century, as well as current events such as the Brexit campaign.
But you, sir, sound like a xenophobe to me.
